Nelson Mandela Visiting His Former Place of Imprisonment

Nelson Mandela Visiting His Former Place of Imprisonment

Nelson Mandela revisits his old prison cell in Victor Vester Prison on Robben Island. He spent more than two decades in the small cell as a political prisoner, held by the apartheid based government from 1964-1990 for sabotage. With the coming of a freer political climate, Mandela was released from his life sentence at Victor Vester Prison on February 11, 1990. He went on to lead the African National Congress in negotiations with President F. W. de Klerk, that resulted in the end of apartheid and full citizenship for all South Africans. He and de Klerk received a joint Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 for their efforts. Mandela was elected president in 1994.
